The Holburne Museum is an independent charity that receives no regular government or local council funding. Every donation, trust grant, business sponsorship and membership subscription helps us to stay free-to-enter and remain Bath’s Art Museum for Everyone.
We are very fortunate to have a strong group of supporters in our Patrons, Friends, Corporate Members and our newly launched group, the Holburne Contemporaries. Together, their support helps to raise much needed funding that underpins all the work of the Holburne from our enthralling exhibitions to our learning and community activities for people of all ages, backgrounds and abilities, from our curatorial salaries to our annual maintenance costs.
On top of our core fundraising work from time-to-time we launch one-off campaigns to fund specific projects such as acquisitions and education projects. The most significant campaign the Museum ever launched was our highly successful £11.2million development that restored our Grade I Listed building and created Eric Parry’s stunning modern extension.
Importantly, these fundraising projects allow you, the donor, to choose exactly where you want your support to go.
Catalyst Endowment – support the future work of the Holburne. Our aim is to secure £8m in time to celebrate our centenary in 2016.
Conservation – as you can appreciate, the restoration and conservation of Art is a never ending project that will always require significant support.
Education – our educational work supports diverse groups in our community including the homeless, mentally challenged, teenagers, young children, and people living with dementia. Support of our educational work is ongoing and we would welcome the opportunity to talk with you further.
